The MediaMixer project ended at the close of April 2014! The goal has always been to support industry and academia in understanding and taking up innovative multimedia technology – for media analysis, semantic annotation, rights management and media fragments. We hope you too found some benefit in the past months from our communications and content.
However, it is certainly not the end of MediaMixer’s benefits for you and your organisation since all materials, presentations and videos created by MediaMixer have been collected and are on line. We hope this will form an useful and valuable collection for you and your colleagues now and in the future.
We remain keen to hear your feedback and suggestions for our online materials, and you can contact us at any time via the form at http://mediamixer.eu/contact. MediaMixer remains at your service! We will continue to tweet from @project_mmixer about events and materials of MediaMixer relevance, so that you can continue to explore media mixing for your research or your business.
SHORT INTRODUCTIONS TO EVERY ASPECT OF MEDIAMIXER: THE ONE MINUTE VIDEO AND MEDIAMIXER WEBINARS
Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start: well, how about ONE MINUTE of your time if you still need a brief summary of what MediaMixer is all about? Just click over to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McAlxWtXabE and 69 seconds later we trust you are better informed!
Next up is short explanations of each technology and use case. That’s why we recorded the MediaMixer Webinars! Firstly, coordinator Lyndon Nixon grounds the reason for MediaMixer. Then our technical partners describe the technologies that make it possible. Finally, our use case partners give short insights into the benefits for their domains that MediaMixer technology enabled. All in anything from 17 to 68 minutes, and at http://mediamixer.eu/live/.
LEARNING ABOUT OUR TECHNOLOGIES: THE CORE TECHNOLOGY SET, WINTER SCHOOL AND TUTORIAL
MediaMixer technologies cover media analysis, annotation, fragmentation, rights management and re-use. Our experts share their knowledge about these technologies in several forms for you. Firstly, our final Core Technology Report provides a definitive summary of each technology area in one chapter and recommends tools and services you can start with today.

Then our January Winter School featured hour long talks on media analysis, annotation and rights management which were recorded and are available at http://videolectures.net/wmpa2014_dublin/
Last and not least, our April Tutorial at the World Wide Web Conference (WWW2014) covered the three key pillars of analysis, annotation and re-use. Our slides are at http://mediamixer.eu/tutorial.
LEARNING VIA CASE STUDIES: THE MEDIAMIXER USE CASES AND DEMONSTRATORS
Technology is a means to an end, and that end is bringing benefits to business and solving organizational problems. MediaMixer worked with several industry domains to produce use cases and demonstrators, which focused on the areas of media owners (copyright management), media producers (TV newsrooms) and media distributors (e-learning video platform).
The Use Case white papers, videos and demos provide all you need to know about MediaMixer technology benefits for each domain:

TRANSFER OF INNOVATION TO INDUSTRY: THE MEDIAMIXER INNOVATION DAY
MediaMixer addressed wider application to industry uptake in the form of facilitating knowledge and technology transfer through an Innovation Day in April in London. The event brought together MediaMixer events with key industry representatives (among others: FOCAL, Getty Images, Pearson, Sound and Vision) from media archives and producers. Panel discussions and lightning talks focused on the barriers to uptake of innovative multimedia technology from the industry perspective, but also revealed how the industry is recognizing future challenges through digitisation and sharing of online media bring the need for new technological solutions. All the presentations and post-event video interviews are available alongside a summary of the event at http://mediamixer.eu/innovate/
